HBT Weekend Wrapup

Sep 12, 2011, 9:40 AM EDT

Terry Francona, DeMarlo Hale

The NFL started over the weekend, so that means that no one is paying attention to baseball anymore apart from us obsessives. Here’s the stuff the obsessives obsessed about:

Let’s get into this week. A week in which we may actually have some wild card races heating up and stuff.  How about that?

    Ok so there were no stories about the Phillies.. How can I do my best Chris Fiorentino or whatever it is and make the comments about nothing but the Phillies.

    Oh I know. Heard Cliff Lee spent Saturday night playing poker at a casino in Wisconsin. Maybe Bud Selig should give him a call.

      How could you not know who Pete Orr is?!?! Heresy I say.

      By the by, if there’s such a thing as fan interference, when do we start cracking down on sausage interference?

        Sausage interference is a serious problem in today’s society. At the bar just the other night………..

        Pete Orr is a fine Canadian. The inhuman treatment of Pete is a disgrace.

    So if it wasn’t Jim Brunzell, it has to be B. Brian Blair, right? Gotta love old-school wrestling references.

      now if a team would just adopt the bumble-bee themed uniforms, complete with masks.

      As soon as I saw that I thought “Wait, Jumping Jim Brunzell?” And then my brain confirmed, yes, he was, in fact, Jumping.

    I certainly hope there will be some mention of Posada catching over the weekend. Not only because Posada was catching a live game in a meaningful race, but he also threw out a guy @ 2nd (no, not another catcher) and a Canadian was hurt. The series of events that culminated in Grumpy being allowed into a game wearing his full catching suite with permission to play shouldn’t go unremarked IMO.

      Russell Nathan Jeanson Coltrane Martin, Jr was missed. Posadamonteroromine was his replacement. Get back soon.
